Drivers put their cars to the test in Moultrie

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Sports Car Club of America hosts events throughout the year to let drivers all over the country do what they can't do on the road.

On Sunday the Dixie region which covers south Georgia and north Florida brought that excitement to Moultrie.

About sixty drivers for all ages and experience levels maneuvered through the Autocross course at Spence Field.

The fastest time today was 44 seconds, a low time requires a driver be smooth, precise, and quick.

"Typically we try to keep our speeds under highway speeds 60 to 70 at a maximum, but most of the times you're doing tight turns, for the most part they're only a few places on the track where you can reach that type of speed," Mike Lollar, Dixie Region Executive SCCA.

Driver entries are open to the public, it's 30 to 40 dollars, a driver license is required.

Organizers say this type of driving helps people by emphasizing the driver's ability and the car's handling characteristics for quick responses in emergency situations.
